Jones also touched on Overtime mode, the series' sandbox gameplay that extends beyond the main campaign timeline. "So there's not just the six days, we're going beyond that if you make the right story decisions. So it's not like choose-your-own-adventure crazy infinite endings, there's a finite amount, but they all [correspond to] meaningful story decisions that you make as you play through."
Dead Rising 3, in development at Capcom Vancouver as an Xbox One launch exclusive this November, stars new protagonist Nick and takes place ten years after the events of Dead Rising 2. Outside the core sandbox go-anywhere gameplay, Dead Rising 3 is anchored by an expanded weapon crafting system first introduced in Dead Rising 2.
